Initial Reports From Benghazi Libya Indicate Planned Attack

“This was a coordinated attack, more of a commando-style event. It had both coordinated fire — direct fire and indirect fire. There appeared to be military maneuvers approaching the facility.” – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich. to CBS News

Experts believe the attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others and left three more wounded in Benghazi was a planned and coordinated para-military operation. The timing coincided with the anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks. The mob violence seems to have been used as a distraction.

    @majrod Your comment doesn't surprize me at the least and very believable. Look at what he is trying to do to this country, on our right to bear arms. He can allow gun's into Mexico, that ended in the hands of the drug cartel, and supply weapons to so called freedom fighters in Libya, but then try to limit the type of weapons law abiding citizens of this country can own. It'll never happen Mr. President, not on your watch or anybody else's watch. Go peddle your ware's in Kenya, where you came from. We're not buying your endless bull-shit.

    @KineticFury @SEAN SPOONTS The Russian's warned us not to go into Libya, because even though Gadafi was a ruth-less killer of his own people, at least we knew who we were dealing with. Now we haven't got a clue.

    @DavidGrega According to this administration, voter fraud is just a coincidence. too.

    When are we going to learn? When the French and the Engish call it quits, pull up stakes and run, it's time for us, to get out of Dodge. Didn't Vietnam teach us anything. The real question should be asked, why were they there, in the first place. This whole administration should be tried as war criminals. It's obvious to me anyway, that these people have no clue as to what they are doing, or even who they are supplying weapon's to, in the first place. These people in power now, think they are playing a game of "Stratego", but it's real lives that are at stake here. Let's all be glad these incompetents were not here during world war II, or we all would be speaking German or Japanese now.
